 This book is the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the integrated tribunal system created by the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. It provides a structured approach to the practice and procedure of tribunals, setting the rules of procedure in context and providing a framework for understanding and analysing the practices that apply to them.

 

'This book is a remarkable achievement and is thoroughly recommended for those who sit on, appear before, or otherwise have to consider the work of tribunals.' Peter Lane, Senior Immigration Judge in the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber).

'Edward Jacobs' new work seems destined to make a major contribution ...  I look forward to using the work as a ready handbook and guide to the new tribunals world.' Lord Justice Carnwath, Senior President of Tribunals, from his foreword.

'This is highly recommended reading for anyone preparing cases for or representing at any tribunal under the new integrated system.' Adviser

Since publication of the first edition, the tribunal structure has continued to expand with the introduction of immigration and asylum chambers in both the First-tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal, and the increase of jurisdictions within the General Regulatory Chamber. This new edition takes full account of those changes and the many amendments to the rules of procedure.

There is comprehensive analysis of the key procedural decisions made by the Upper Tribunal that lay the foundations for the new procedural regimes, including R (RB) v First-tier Tribunal on the use of the review power; Secretary of State for Justice v RB on the status of High Court decisions; and LS v Lambeth LBC on the scope of the decisions that are appealable to the Upper Tribunal.

As well as dealing with the rules of procedure, this book contains practical advice for tribunal members and those who appear before them. For parties and their representatives, it deals with obtaining and assessing evidence, writing decisions, applying for adjournments, techniques of questioning and tribunal advocacy.

This is essential reading for tribunal judges and panel members, representatives and anyone who appears before the tribunal or is interested in how they work.
